A CD FULL OF LOVE SONGS

Sometimes going old school is the most heartwarming thing you can do for your loved ones, particularly if you put a lot of thought into it. If you’re really strapped for cash and have a blank CD or two lying around, why not make a mix of your favorite loved songs? Everyone has their own taste so you don’t have to choose sappy tearjerkers, just songs you know your partner will love. Add your own cover to personalize it if you like and if you don’t have a CD, make a Spotify [26] playlist instead.
